COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If Green Flash were founded in historical Belgium, Rayon Vert would have been our flagship brew. A bold layering of hops finds balance from traditional malts. Bottle conditioning with fresh ale yeast and Brettanomyces finishes the beer, adding a delightful effervescence, dryness and continuously evolving character. Rayon Vert is Green Flash.

Une offrande explosive embouteillée le 24 août 2012. Effervescence surmenée au départ mais dès qu’elle se calme, les saveurs se placent. Des relents de conifères, du brett savonneux et une finale de verdure, buvabilité toxique.

12oz bottle. Clear light amber with a huge lasting straw-coloured head. Lovely aroma - fruity and floral, fairly strong alcohol - simple, quite bitter too. Taste follows but with a real funky "Orval" bite to it - average body, very airy, astringent, spicy, dry, quick-finishing with a slightly tart fruit aftertaste ... surprised how much I like it.

Bottle in Iowa. Way to much funk, made ir awful for me. Brett or something overwhelmed me

Shark_Pants (146) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2013
Massive carbonation requiring a slow pour and still resulting in a sizable head. Aroma musty hay & funk from the Brett & citrus from the hops. Taste is funk, lemon zest, coriander, with some good body from the malt & a light sourness in the finish. Not too bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s into my Funkwerks tulip glass. Orange and cloudy with a big, lasting white head. Aroma is tart, funky, fruity, bretty and lightly sour, quite enticing. Similar flavor with an earthy bitterness and a dry feel. Refreshing and tasty as fuck. Update: Other bottles of this haven’t been quite 4.0, but close. Still, top notch and fantastic in some bottles/batches.

Sweet lemon aroma, huge bone white foam at first pour this beer has the Belgian yeast, malty body and green hop aftertaste. Easier drinker, lighter than expected.

12 oz bottle poured into a trappist glass. Huge head formed from massive carbonation, took 4 pours to get it all out of the bottle. Decent aroma, nothing too funky going on here. Taste is crisp and thin. Good beer, will enjoy again.

Green flash pale ales have this really recognizable house aroma. I like this more than their friendship brew. It has a Belgian flavor but not as easily found as I am used to. Pretty resiny and dank hops. There was a relentless cloud of head when I poured. Ok combination of the green flash taste with Belgian style. Not fantastic

Not my favorite style, but decided to give a single a try from Archer Liquors in Chicago. Massive head is probably an understatement. Taste is pretty weird to me, hops, orange peel and a medicinal / sour taste. Hey, I can say I tried it.

Supposedly an Orval clone, but I find the aftertaste more appealing than that of Orval. Pours with tremendous head settling into a nice copper color. The aroma and taste are quite similar to a great Brittany brut cider.
